His Love

Jared and I have been reading this book called Jesus Calling. It is a daily devotional book that speaks like Jesus is directly talking to us. It's amazing and has been a bonding book for Jared and I. Every morning, Jared types up that days Jesus Calling and sends it to my work email. The central themes are finding peace only in Him and His Love for us. I had to write down Thursday's because it literally took my breath away.

From Jesus Calling February 24th (Sarah Young)

Be still in the light of my presence, while I communicate love to you. There is no force in the universe as powerful as My love. You are constantly aware of limitations: your own and others'. But there is no limit to My Love; it fills all of space, time and eternity.

Now you see through a glass darkly, but someday you will see Me face to face. Then you will be able to experience fully how wide and long and high and deep is My Love for you. If you were to experience that now, you would be overwhelmed to the point of feeling crushed. But you have an eternity ahead of you, absolutely guaranteed, during which you can enjoy my presence in unrestricted ecstasy. For now, the knowledge of my Loving Presence is sufficient to carry you through each day.

THANK YOU for sharing this! I'm going to copy it down and put it on my desktop. It gave me chills and almost made me cry. Jesus knew this was just what I needed to hear today.

How awesome that you and Jared are reading a book together. I'd love to do that more with Michael - such a good bonding thing to do!

God has said, "Never will I leave you, never will I forsake you." So we say with confidence, "The Lord is my helper. I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?" Hebrews 13:5-6
